    850 is likely out the Browns net because of its AMness. I still puzzle why they changed from a pefectly good 10k/5kw set up to the 50k/4k deal with such poor nighttime coverage. So you can hear them during the day in Detroit. Does that help them sell commercials?

    WKNR was damn lucky to piggyback onto the rights deal as Alec Scheiner was bullish on AM radio for some inexplicable reason. AM 850 was one of many AM stations that did an upgrade to 50kW daytime when the window opened up in the 1990s. And remember, it was still WRMR, with a standards format, and (until 1998) locally owned. Ted Alexander (who built the current array) told me once that the current night pattern is virtually the same as the old night pattern under the original 1959 configuration, the one difference being that the new 4.7kW equaled the original 5kW in terms of signal strength. Suburban sprawl’s what made 850’s night signal obsolete.

    So if the night pattern doesn’t even cover the metro Cleveland area, why can’t they bump up the power a little?

    …and WKGE 850 in Johnstown PA, plus first adjacents WHAS 840 Louisville and CJBC 860 Toronto don’t help matters either.
